About "Climate Change"
The impacts of climate change can be debated. Whether manmade or not, a consensus of the scientific community argues that climate change is a public health threat in many regions of the world. We are seeing impacts of rising temperatures, and how the public responds is an extemper’s burden to explain.
For example, how should higher heat in the far East affect North Korea’s nuclear program? What should be done to deter the Congo’s Ebola outbreak? Can the argument be made that the California fires are caused by climate change? Or can it be linked to the problems with the state’s environmental laws?
Extempers get to explain how the change in the environment could be a public health concern in modern times.
This week’s final round goes deep into climate change as a public health issue. Other topics include immigration policy, bitcoin, trade wars, US-Russian relations, and much more!
